New home for Porkstock plus Reepham gets a food festival
PORKSTOCK, the family festival for foodies, is moving this year. The event, which began as a bit of fun among friends 14 years ago, will set up camp at the Norfolk Showground on Saturday, October 14.
Run entirely by a team of hardworking volunteers, all profits go to charity and, for the second year in a row, the beneficiary will be Nelson’s Journey, which supports bereaved children in Norfolk.
During the day Porkstock is a free family festival for music and food, from handmade fudge to artisan cheese; delicious preserves and chutneys to locally produced wine, beer and spirits. There’s also a cookery stage with demos and talks from some of the region’s leading chefs, butchers and restaurateurs as well as a few very special guests.
As the sun goes down the Porkstock Party kicks off, an adult-only, ticketed event where music takes over from food as the main attraction. There will be an array of live bands on the main stage and the Gin Palace will be returning with an electro-swing extravaganza provided by the outstanding Tallulah and the Goodtimes Republic.
Last year’s events drew 4,000 visitors and raised £10,000 for Nelson’s Journey.
